Some of us shove our stuff into drawers and closets, but some of us organize our supplies, tools, documents, and notions into beautiful and visible containers. If you have a friend who is organized and stylish, consider making them some of these great handmade storage containers.

Willoughby Nesting Bins
We absolutely love these crocheted nesting bins! The pattern is written for beginners and requires just your yarn, a crochet hook, and a darning needle. (You can do it!) The instructions are for bins in three different sizes. Take some time on the Fancy Tiger Crafts site, where you’ll find tons of great products and projects.
The Pixie Cup
These great Pixie Cups would be awesome for artists, writers, sewists, and kids. Use fun prints on the outside, or for a cleaner look, try grey flannel or denim. Heidi has lots of other terrific tutorials, including quilt patterns on her Fabric Mutt site.
These soft fabric buckets would make a great container for a thoughtful gift basket. Fill it will baby stuff for new parents, kitchen tools for a cook, or skin and hair products for a teen. We love the fact that the rim can fold down for a cute contrasting edge. Check out this and oodles and oodles of other amazing tutorials at See Kate Sew.
